Re: JetBlue requiring staff to take unpaid leave

The CARES act does exempt certain workgroups from immediate furloughs and other acts. Salaried management and other support staff are exempt work groups and can furlough those employees immediately and do not have to wait till the end of the CARES act.

So AA could be no more by end of September. Sad! Who else will liquidate. WN expects to stay profitable thr...
